Several years ago I was a Senior Fellow at Woodstock Theological Center working on questions in science and religion. One day the program manager appeared at my door and asked if I wanted some boxes of notes that had been taking up space in his office. The notes happened to be those of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and he did not know what to do with them. Woodstock had inherited the notes from Nicole Schmitz-Moorman whose father, Karl Schmitz-Moorman, inherited the notes after Teilhard’s death. Karl bequeathed the notes to his daughter who, in turn, donated them to Woodstock. The notes are type-written pages, hundreds of them.
